I am a millennial currently in my fourth year of tenure as an HR Professional. I studied HR in college, and I find the psychology behind organizations fascinating. My experience in HR ranges from Employee Experience, Administrative, Training & Development, and HR Generalist. I have my bachelors in business with a focus in HR and I am currently pursuing my MBA with a focus in entrepreneurship. I was drawn to HR because I thought I could hire accountants, financial advisors, marketing consultants, but I couldn't outsource handling, managing, and motivating people - that's a full time role in itself, and something every one in the organization needs to be strong in. HR innovation is the key driver of the industry, and fresh HR ideas need to be shared openly.
I grew up on a horse farm in Maryland and cherish spending time outdoors, working with my hands.
I am an opinionated and non-traditional millennial, and I hope my thoughts add some value to your operations.
People are the single most expensive asset of any company, but the optimization of that asset is consistently under resourced, over expected, and minimized by organizations (to their own detriment).
Early in my career, which many would argue is right now, I was told that most of the HR issues we would face and need to address can be addressed with Common Sense. There is no need for a special formula, or new methodology, it's simply common sense. Clearly, managers all over the world don't have common sense, or maybe it's not so simple .... Hence, the name - my goal is to shed light on the topic of HR in a way that helps everyone see it as common sense.
My passion lies with HR innovation, there is always a new way to think about people, new research out, and new problems to solve. The best way to make our industry grow is by sharing our HR ideas with each other. I am a big proponent of disruptive thinking, breaking something down to make it easier to digest - which makes reviewing and understanding the innovations and ideas much easier.
